News Article: German Men Losers in Bed, Survey of Women Finds

BERLIN (Reuters) - German men are losers in bed and nearly
half of the women in the country say their partners leave them
unsatisfied, according to a report in the best-selling newspaper
Bild Friday.
A survey of 345 women between the ages of 18 and 59 by the
INRA research institute found that four in 10 were disappointed
with their partners.
The survey was printed beneath a page one headline that
read: "The bitter truth about Germans in bed -- nearly every
second women says: My partner can't satisfy me." The women
complained of being neglected or that their partners were too
rough.
"A horrible picture emerges whenever I have therapy
sessions with couples and then talk with the women alone,"
Professor Hartmut Porst, a leading sex therapist, told Bild.
"The women complain about their men, saying they feel sexually
neglected."
He added that many German women have the impression that
their partners treat sex as a "required duty" rather than
something romantic or even spontaneous.
"It's almost as if the men are looking forward to a date on
the calendar rather than an erotic experience," Porst said.
Dr Werner Habermehl, head of the Gewis institute for social
research, said he found more than 30 percent of the women he
surveyed recently disappointed with their partners.
"Men just don't know enough about the world of feelings
that women live in," Habermehl said.
The newspaper also quoted a 22-year-old woman who complained
about her partner.
"Everything that my friend does in bed seems so
technical," said the chemist identified only as Kerstin. "It's
like he's the engineer and I'm the piece of machinery."
